It’s another birth story episode today and this one is a lot. And by a lot I mean that Kelsey experienced quite a range of different things during her pregnancies and birth.
Kelsey joins us to talk about the stress around her first pregnancy, a very wanted pregnancy that she ended because of a fatal genetic condition. She explores how she got pregnant again pretty quickly after that and what that experience was like.
She also talks about the trouble she had bonding with that pregnancy, what it was like to be pregnant during COVID, and how she had a lovely birth but experienced postpartum bleeding from a retained placenta as well as trouble with breastfeeding from a rare condition called DMER -dysmorphic milk ejection reflex. After all that, she even had to evacuate with her family because of wildfires when her daughter was only 2 months old!
So as you can see Kelsey’s been through a lot but you will also learn how she managed everything with so much strength. I was really inspired by her story and I know that you will be too.
